Severe thunderstorms swept through parts of Saskatchewan and Alberta, Canada on August 31, 2021, bringing torrential rainfall, intense winds, hail, localized flooding and tornado warnings in Saskatchewan.

A trough digging in across the western Prairies helped develop a low-pressure system, which is trekking through the region. The system produced severe thunderstorms in parts of southern Alberta and Saskatchewan, while heavy rain fell on communities up north, The Weather Network reported.1

Golf ball-sized hail was reported in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan, whose mayor ended up trapped in her car for about 20 minutes.2

Multiple tornado warnings were issued in parts of the province as a thunderstorm capable of producing a twister was detected.
